I'm a Russian Jew, and I completely agree. Jews prospered in Poland. Polish Catholic rulers took a different approach to conversions of Jews. Successful Jews who converted to Catholicism were given Polish Nobility titles (u get more flies with honey was the approach). Jews were not persecuted and were welcomed in Poland. There is a misunderstanding about why most of the Concentration Camps were in Poland... it was not because Poles were racists but because logistically it was convenient for the Germans because most European Jews lived in Poland!
Tsarists Russia caused all the strife for Jews living in Poland and Belarus. If the Romanov Royal S#!t-heads wouldn't have taken control of Poland and Belarus, and the Germans wouldn't have created the genocide, I believe there would still be a huge Jewish population in Poland, but unlike the population of 100 years ago which did not mix, there would probably be a huge number of mixed marriages between Christian and Jewish Poles.
I think Poland needs a better PR campaign, because in the West the true view of Poland is distorted, and American Jews, like their non Jewish counterparts are not well educated when in comes to things outside of their profession. And if you don't know the truth, it's far too easy to make assumptions that have no basis in reality.
For those who do not know:
1. Poland has the biggest number of Righteous Among Men (people who rescued Jews durring WWII) of any nation according to Israel's Yad Vashem.
2. Poland has the smallest number of people who cooperated in selling and turning Jews over to the Nazi's, less then 0.1%.
